Dear friends: we're back!
As with all great bike tours, Dad dusts off the old Willie Nelson album (figuratively, on Spotify, of course) and begins singing:
"Just can't wait to get on the road again,
Goin' places I ain't never been,
Seein' things that I may never see again,
The life I love is cycling with my family..."
... and then he's off into heavy paraphrasing and his three fellow riders tune out. But still.
Our bikes are boxed, our panniers are stuffed, our meals are dehydrated, and our playlists are up-to-date. We're ready to get on the road again.
Ten months after returning home from our 10,000km, 20-country Europe Epic, we're embarking on a nine-week summer journey on two wheels across central British Columbia (Kelowna to Castlegar through the Slocan Valley) and Atlantic Canada: New Brunswick, PEI, les Iles de la Madeleine, Cape Breton and the east coast of Newfoundland from Gros Morne to the first known Viking settlement in North America at Anse-aux-Meadows. About 2,000km in seven provinces, visiting a couple dozen aunts, uncles and cousins across this spectacular country of ours.

We can't wait to share the ride with you!
